Even, some families have small houses so keeping social distance is problem. So, many people tried contacting us but our old age home is full and we cannot take more people." Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Hiramani Old age home said, "Our old age home has more number of inquiries and each day we get lot of phone calls.
